It's a new start for me. I can feel the drive and the determination taking over. I am ready to do it! For today, exercise for at least 2 hours and net 1500 calories. That's not too difficult. Have to remember that I have to take it one day at a... Read more

Challenging Weather

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      3 comments

With winds at 22 MPH and gusts in the 40's, it sure makes for challenging bike riding. However, we must finish the year strong and can't let wind conditions stop our riding. Have to hang tough and "ride" it out. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Freezing Cold Bike Ride

Saturday, December 05, 2009      2 comments

Temperature was 26 degrees. The organized bike ride was 62 miles and I was toasty warm, in my car. It hit me the second I left the car to go and registered. Have you ever tried to fill out a form when your whole body and rock and rolling? It has... Read more

November was a Disaster

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      11 comments

Too much in, not enough out. That's a summary of my November. Now I have to make it up in December. A daunting task what with all the parties, cookies, egg nog, dirty martinis, etc. But if one is to lose it, one must be willing to sacrifice. And... Read more

Stop Messing Around

Sunday, September 27, 2009      7 comments

It's been 4 years since I accepted my doctor's advice to stop running and took up biking. For those 4 years I have biked in excess of 40,000 miles without real goals, but now I'm changing all of that. I'm going to concentrate on quality biking s... Read more

Correct Me If I'm Wrong.

Wednesday, September 02, 2009      6 comments

Many of you will not like this blog and that's OK, but I really wanted to throw this out for consideration. Are we rewarding the right people? You tell me. Example #1: John and Mary have been over-weight for most of their lives. In spite of... Read more
